An Office of One’s Own

Why I like having an office (sometimes two) to myself:

Because it makes my key ring heavier than just having two keys for the same lock to my ger on it;

Because it makes me feel important when people ‘step into my office,’ even if they really meant to enter the door next to mine for the food canteen;

Because it makes, ‘Step into my office,’ sound that much more legitimate, should I ever have the opportunity to say it;

Because it has a door I can close when I want to take pictures of myself on PhotoBooth under the guise of doing work;

Sometimes I don't close the door

Because it provides the space for a sweaty-faced Mongolian opera singer to sing Italian opera to me with the volume to fill an Opera House while standing two feet from my face.
